Orris Root Powder

Orris root powder is the peeled, dried, and ground rhizome of a family of plants known for their magnificent blooms. Native to the eastern Mediterranean region, they are now cultivated in northern India, north Africa, and southern Europe. The smell of this spice powder reminds one of violets. The unadulterated form of orris root powder is expensive, thus storing the powder carefully is important, as it attracts moisture rapidly.

Orris root powder, also known as flag iris, is a member of the iris family with beautiful, large, purple flowers and sword-like leaves. Native to the Mediterranean region, the violet-scented root has been used in perfumery since the time of ancient Greece.
